  • You might want to get your salivary glands checked if the problem persists

  • You got diagnosed with strep? Well, at least you know what it is!!! Best advice with that is BE SURE TO TAKE ALL YOUR MEDS. tAKE THEM TIL THEY ARE GONE BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T, YOU ONLY KNOCK THE INFECTION DOWN AND IT GOES INTERNAL and GETS STRONGER AND THE NEXT TIME YOU GET WEAK- IT COMES BACK EVEN WORSE!!. EVEN IF YOU FEEL MUCH BETTER- TAKE ALL THE MEDS. You should probably start taking a daily capsule of acidopholus too because alot of the meds (antibiotics) kill the bad and GOOD BACTERIA so by taking a that (yogurt too), it will build your immunity back up. Otherwise, you WILL MOST LIKELY get a yeast infection once you start taking the pills!!!:( Avoid yeasty foods i.e. sugars, dairy, soda, chocolate, icecream as these feed the yeast problem and triple your mucous and provide more "space" for the strep bacteria to thrive and feed on!! (Not to mention slow down your getting well process. Drink plenty of water and gatorade and rest. Do you take vitamins? B vitamins and A,C, AND ZINC are very important to fight stress and help fight infections. Good Luck! And if you smoke JUST STOP!!! Do something good for yourself!:p

  • I want to offer one more suggestion (this helped me with sore throats in the past), gargle with warm salt water. Every 4 hours (salt helps to KILL BACTERIA). If your throat is REALLY SORE, boil some SAGE TEA and drink it with a little honey (good for soreness and honey is a natural antibiotic:) Or SLIPPERY ELM TEA is beneficial too! I used to sing in a chorus and these things saved me on a few occasions!:D

  • Try this -- it works every time. 1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar to 6 oz of warm water. Gargle the first sip, swallow the second sip, gargle the third sip, swallow the fourth sip, etc., until it's all gone. The first swallow will burn to beat the band, :eek: but after that it feels great. After about three times doing this throughout the day, you probably won't need to do it at all anymore. It's been proven that vinegar kills Strep. I've been using this method for about three years now, and it's never failed me. One other thing you can try is a fairly strong lemon tea with just a tiny, tiny pinch of cayenne pepper, and sip slowly. Again the first sip with sting a bit, but your throat will feel better with each swallow. Try the vinegar first though. It really works. :)

  • wow thanx for all the replies guys, and i will definitely keep those remedies in mind, this forum is a great resource for help. But as the throat culture turns out it was just an infection, and 2 doctors told me to take it ez and let the body do its work (after waiting for 3 hours, i was told its not strep and to go home, great health care here in canada). But even so, thanx for all ur replies, really appreciate it. my throat no longer hurts, i think the antibiotics took care of that, but my gums are still pretty swollen, sores went away, im just waiting for the gums to settle down and im good.
